At last month’s event we shared our favorite online videos, spanning advocacy, documentaries, and viral campaigns, and discussed what worked and what didn’t. For anyone who couldn’t make it, or just for some inspiration as you produce your own videos, here are some of the featured works. Feel free to comment or tweet us @net2dc to add any that we missed.
And don’t forget to check out http://freevlog.org/ for free video resources, in-person trainings, and a supportive community of people producing videos for change.
Imagine living under a busy freeway in New Orleans. Now imagine you have to sleep in a group, because the threat of violence is never far.
When you live outside, without a door to lock or a roof over your head, you are constantly vulnerable to violence. For Steven, the fear of violence never completely goes away. He said the other night another homeless man was “bricked.” (Yes, it is as horrible as it sounds.)
That all said, I’m still shocked after hearing the last job Steven held.
